I'm using a new Vera Lane digi stamp on this. She actually is an artist with a paint brush and a palette. That's why she's wearing that beret. So I decided she could ditch the brush and I trimmed the palette so I could attach my fancy handmade purse. Because of the beret, which is pretty cute, I thought she needed to be in Paris. She's colored using prismacolors and gamsol and highlighted with copics. I used an alpha stamp set to stamp the Bonjour and I drew the Eiffel Tower in the background. TFL!

This card is wonderful in so many ways. That background is terrific. The mixed media and artistic look just sends me. The fact that you drew the tower amazes me. Really, really special card, Polly. Bravo.

Oo la la, she is very chic and Parisian looking, Polly. I can just see her in the Place des Tertres in Montmartre, painting away. (That might be where you see Gene Kelly in American in Paris, I must take another look at that!). Great working altering her so that she's holding that so-sweet purse. And fab background.

Oh, Miss Polly, oo-la-la is right! She is just the sweetest, and I love how you've given her a lovely purse and created and stunning background -- an even drew the Eiffel Tower! Your creativity knows no bounds. I love it, sweet friend! Hugs! xoxo

Oh la la...how do you say "weirdo arty stuff" in French! Pol this is W.A.S. at its magical best! Your hand drawn Eiffel Tower is great and I love how you gave the palette the flick and created a handbag. I can't stay and chat, I need to send a bribe to Sabrina!!!!
